Seems to me that he probably enabled the bet by telling someone he was off.
His public denial:
“I want to make it clear that while a professional footballer, I have at no stage placed any football related bets or received any financial benefit from others betting.”

The only way out of this is a vaccine. So I fully expect the government to fully approve one in the next few months. They have to. It doesn't matter how effective it is as long as it doesn't kill too many.
